Webkinz Insider is signed up for "Family Friendly" advertisements. That is the only category of ads we are supposed to be getting here. Unfortunately, we don't get to review the ads before they show up here on WI. We see them for the first time at the same time you do.

Sometimes, an ad slips through that, while the ad company calls it "family friendly" we, and our members, don't. Justin can go in and block those advertisements in the programming so that they will never show up again. To do that, he needs information from you.

If you ever see an advertisement you believe is inappropriate for WI, please make a note of the name of the company and/or product it is advertising, and please right-click on the ad to get the URL of the site it would have taken you to if you had clicked on it. Justin can use this info to block the ad, and, if necessary, complain to the ad company for sending it to us in the first place.

Sorry, but we can't control what ads we can get on here. But when you do see an inappropriate ad, please record the time and where you saw it, then PM this to Justin.
Thanks for keeping WI safe!

I second Mickey on this, and they can get rid of the inappropriate ones but they do need all the info. I have blocked them out of my eyesight, just mentally, I don't even pay attention to them anymore, but I know there are some bound to slip that is inappropriate for kiddos. I was reading also that it is not just WI, there was an ad for bras on a WW account as well, on a little boys account. Not cool, I don't get other ads besides like the Justin Bieber ads but I hear alot of accounts get random ones. I don't know how that works, I don't have 3rd party ads blocked.

When you click on the link that Mickey provided there is an answer from FIA that is helpful

I have to say, my son put something called AdThwart on my computer. I never see any ads on WI or my FaceBook. The outside ads on WW are not there, but the Hop ads and other ads for the estore are. Best of all.....it was free. I wish I knew more about it, in case anyone was interested, but all I know is there is a red cat at the end of my browser bar and I love it. It makes a huge difference.
